At Francis House we are extremely grateful for the tremendous ongoing support we receive from our local Golf Clubs.
We are privileged to have been chosen by the Captains and Lady Captains of many clubs across the north west as their charity of the year. This support has been built upon year-on-year, and upheld through the many fundraising efforts of golf days, overseas golfing trips, dinners and awards evenings.
Withington, Northenden and Davyhulme Park Golf Club have all organised outstanding events throughout the year with great prizes, excellent player turnout and generous sponsors. Highlights from recent events include:
Stockport Golf Day
A regular on the golf day calendar, our very own Golf event saw enthusiastic teams taking part in the Annual Francis House golf tournament at the prestigious Stockport Golf Club.
The day was kindly sponsored again by Hot Holidays and raised thousands of pounds – thanks to all the players, sponsors and volunteers.
Trafford Park Golf Day
For more than half a century there has been a golf day at Davyhulme Park Golf Club and for thirteen of those years the charity benefitting from the support shown on the day is Francis House Children’s Hospice.
In that time more than £40,000 has been raised by generous golfers and sponsors.
David Marsden, Honorary Secretary at the club and director of Trafford Park based Hardwood Dimensions, continues to co-sponsor the event ensuring its continued success.
